Happy New Year! Welcoming 2013

Welcoming in the new year is always an emotional time for me. I like to reflect on all the good times and challenging moments of the past year and I have lots of hope for the new year before me.

Each year I set goals for myself, both personally and professionally, and find great satisfaction in meeting those goals. I'm a Virgo, we love goals:) In our house we've adopted a mantra for the new year: think, act, love. It gets the brain brewing, moves us to action, and infuses love into everything we do. I think it also helps us to simplify how we live. Having a guiding force to do good in the world and to succeed in our lives is so incredibly energizing and filled with endless possibilities.

This year my message to you is simple: You are loved. One of my favorite quotes from Marianne Williamson is what I hope you will carry in your heart for 2013.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are younot to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

We are a little late getting our holiday cards out this year but for those of you on our list you will receive a very special card that shares the photos below and the message of love. I am so happy to send you a card too. Send me an email with your address and I promise to pop it right in the mail:

Wishing you peace, love and goodness for 2013!
